Nearly all political jokes following last night’s Presidential debate, had either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton serving as the punchline, but Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo used the sitting POTUS’s surname as fodder for his fun.
At the Bucks media day event, Antetokounmpo aka “The Greek Freak” told a knock-knock joke that made it clear his future prospects in stand up comedy or singing are not nearly as bright as they are in basketball.
“O-BA-MAAAA SELF ….”
Of course, this coming season, Antetokounmpo will have Michael Beasley ready to provide backup vocals…
ALL BY MYSELF
The song for which Obama’s name serves as the lyrical approximation, was written more than 40 years ago by Eric Carmen and was his first solo hit after leaving the Raspberries. In 1976, “All By Myself” shot to No. 2 on the Billboard charts in the United States, and No. 14 in the United Kingdom. The song’s melody was inspired by Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 which was written in 1900. Talk about old school!
Celine Dion covered Carmen’s signature hit in 1996 and landed it at No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Since it was first posted to YouTube in 2012, Dion’s video for the song has amassed nearly 15 millions views.
